Donald J. Trump, Aziz Ansari, and the Immigration Act of 1924 (A KJ Saturday Morning Op Ed)

untitled (76)As I was trying to figure out what to write about this morning, I started my daily web search of my usual resources. Finding nothing that picqued my interest, I decided to wander over to and found a bunch of articles that consisted of nothing but Liberal Talking Points.

I was shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

This one, however, stood out.

After the Orlando mass shooting nearly two weeks ago, actor and comedian Aziz Ansari warned his mother not to go near mosques, to “do all your prayer at home,” he wrote in a New York Times op-ed.

Ansari, the son of Muslim immigrants, fears for the safety of his family and his Muslim friends, and it is listening to presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump that’s exacerbating his fears.

“Today, with the presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and others like him spewing hate speech, prejudice is reaching new levels,” Ansari wrote. “It’s visceral, and scary, and it affects how people live, work and pray.”

It’s not “Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or the kid who left the boy band One Direction” who comes to mind when Americans think of Muslims, Ansari laments. “It’s of a scary terrorist character from ‘Homeland’ or some monster from the news.”

He talked about the feeling Muslims — or anyone who looks Muslim — have after a horrible attack like the one in San Bernardino or Orlando.

“There is a strange feeling that you must almost prove yourself worthy of feeling sad and scared like everyone else,” he wrote.

Ansari takes issue with Trump’s claim that “people in the American Muslim community ‘know who the bad ones are,’ implying that millions of innocent people are somehow complicit in awful attacks. Not only is this wrongheaded; but it also does nothing to address the real problems posed by terrorist attacks,” Ansari’s op-ed reads. “By Mr. Trump’s logic, after the huge financial crisis of 2007-08, the best way to protect the American economy would have been to ban white males.”

The accusation Trump makes about the Muslims in New Jersey cheering in the streets after the 9/11 attacks seems to hit Ansari especially hard. At the time, he was a student at N.Y.U., living close by the World Trade Center, and the memory of the attacks is vivid.

“The haunting sound of the second plane hitting the towers is forever ingrained in my head,” Ansari wrote. “My building was close enough that it shook upon impact…”

“My family, unable to reach me on my cellphone, was terrified about my safety as they watched the towers collapse,” he continued. “There was absolutely no cheering. Only sadness, horror and fear.

“Mr. Trump, in response to the attack in Orlando, began a tweet with these words: ‘Appreciate the congrats.’ It appears that day he was the one who was celebrating after an attack.”

Trump’s actual response on Twitter was:

Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!

Hardly celebratory.

Suspending immigration is not a new concept.

It’s been done before…for over 40 years.

The following information is courtesy of

During the Harding administration, a stop-gap immigration measure was passed by Congress in 1921 for the purpose of slowing the flood of immigrants entering the United States.

A more thorough law was signed by President Coolidge in May 1924. It provided for the following:

The quota for immigrants entering the U.S. was set at two percent of the total of any given nation`s residents in the U.S. as reported in the 1890 census;
after July 1, 1927, the two percent rule was to be replaced by an overall cap of 150,000 immigrants annually and quotas determined by “national origins” as revealed in the 1920 census.

College students, professors and ministers were exempted from the quotas. Initially immigration from the other Americas was allowed, but measures were quickly developed to deny legal entry to Mexican laborers.

The clear aim of this law was to restrict the entry of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe, while welcoming relatively large numbers of newcomers from Britain, Ireland, and Northern Europe.

The 1921 law had used the 1910 census to determine the base for the quotas; by changing to the 1890 census when fewer Italians or Bulgarians lived in the U.S., more of the “dangerous` and “different” elements were kept out. This legislation reflected discriminatory sentiments that had surfaced earlier during the Red Scare of 1919-20.

U.S. Bureau of the Census, Historical Statistics of the United States,

Colonial Times to 1957 (Washington, D.C., 1960), p. 56.

A provision in the 1924 law barred entry to those ineligible for citizenship — effectively ending the immigration of all Asians into the United States and undermining the earlier “Gentlemen`s Agreement” with Japan. Efforts by Secretary of State Hughes to change this provision were not successful and actually inflamed the passions of the anti-Japanese press, which was especially strong on the West Coast.

Heated protests were issued by the Japanese government and a citizen committed seppuku outside the American embassy in Tokyo. May 26, the effective date of the legislation, was declared a day of national humiliation in Japan, adding another in a growing list of grievances against the U.S.

(The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 upheld the national origins quota system established by the Immigration Act of 1924, reinforcing these quotas.)

In 1965, the Hart-Cellar Act abolished the national origins quota system that had structured America`s immigration policy since the 1920`s, replacing it with a preference system that emphasized immigrants` skills and family relationships with citizens or residents of the United States.

Additionally, in April of 1980, during the Iranian Hostage Crisis, President Jimmy Carter cancelled all visas issued to Iranians for entry into the United States and warned that they would be revalidated only for “compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest requires.”

If you were watching Saturday morning cartoons in 1977, during President Carter’s time in the White House, on ABC, you would have seen a Schoolhouse Rock musical cartoon titled The Great American Melting Pot.  It extolled the unique greatness of  our American heritage.
For a while now, that heritage has been under attack.
The Immigration Act of 1924 was passed because America had experienced an overwhelming flood of immigrants, which strained the resources of our nation.
This act allowed all of these immigrants to be assimilated into American Society and to actually become Americans, in thought, word, deed, and LOYALTY.
An Liberal President Jimmy Carter stopped Iranians from immigrating, because, just like the situation we faced today with Radical Islam, we were AT WAR.
The reason that Obama and his Administration are so “concerned” with Donald J. Trump’s proposal is that is full of common sense, utilized in defense of our sovereignty.
Trump’s proposal would successfully thwart their plans to rapidly import thousands of Muslims, and potential Democrat Voters, into our country, while limiting the reality of Radical Islamists entering our country with the intent to kill our citizens and to cause terror.
Like all Liberals, Mr. Ansari  included, Obama and his Administration remain oblivious of their own hypocrisy.
What this pearl-clutching Liberal’s op ed, posted by the Liberal Propaganda Website known as conveys, is a fact that I have been pointing out since I began writing my daily blog in April of 2010:

If “Moderate” Muslims, such as Mr. Ansari, want to help America in the fight against the Islamic Terrorists’ War against our country and its citizens, they must stand up and speak out against the Terrorists. Don’t complain because the Terrorists are correctly identified as Radical Islamists.

Mr. Ansari, those weren’t Southern Baptists from Mississippi who flew those airplanes into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. They were Muslims from Saudi Arabia.

If you are so afraid of being deported by Donald Trump, you need to change out of your Liberal pair of red onesie pajamas, put on your American blue jeans, put down your mocha latte with the lemon twist, stand up on your hind legs, and stand by the nation which is providing you a living, instead of continuously singing the Linda Rodstadt version of the song “Poor, Poor Pitiful Me”.

Instead of being a hyphenated American…be an American.

Sunday Morning Thoughts: Christian Americans, Modern Liberals, and the War That Dare Not Be Named (At Least By the President)

th1DXO5NI3As I sit down to write today’s blog, our country finds itself  under attack, by enemies foreign and domestic, with the responsible of protecting our very lives falling on the shoulders of a president, who it reticent to even properly identify those who was to destroy us.

President Barack Hussein Obama is in a trap of his own making. It started with his Speech to the Muslim World at the University of Cairo, shortly after his first Inauguration as President, in which he sounded like a subservient dhimmi.

In the years that followed, his genteel Foreign Policy toward the Barbarians of the Muslim World, known as “Smart Power!”, led to a never-ending Radical Islamic Revolution in the Middle East, known as Arab Spring, through which Moderate Muslim Dictators were replaced by Radical Muslim Dictators. It also led to the increased threat of the extermination of Israel, and the changing of NASA into a Muslim Outreach Program.

The sixth President of the United States of America, John Quincy Adams, wrote the following about the nature of Islam:

THE ESSENCE OF HIS [MUHAMMAD’S] DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE [Adams’ capital letters]… Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant… While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and goodwill towards men…The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force.

In contrast, our present Petulant President Pantywaist will not even call Radical Islam by its name, as exhibited most recently by his reluctance to identify the San Bernadino Massacre as the work of Radical Islamists.

He has already proclaimed that we are not at war with Islam.

So, how can America win this war against Radical Islam, if the President of our country will not even admit that we are in one?

And, what are we, as Christian Americans, supposed to do?

First off…while I have met some very nice American Muslims, I have also been inside a mosque where I was looked at as if they wanted to take a scimitar to my neck.

If Moderate Muslims are not behind their radical brethren’s eternal jihad against us infidels, they need to get their mugs in front of the cable news networks’ TV cameras and say so…because all I see representing them when I turn on the news, are the abrasive members of CAIR, blaming America for all the world’s troubles.

Which is ironic, because the President of the United States of America is demonstrably Islam’s biggest supporter in this country, as so aptly proven by his refusal to participate in January’ssslast weekend’s March Against Radical Islam, led by 50 World Leaders, in Paris France.

Secondly, why are American liberals so naively defending these barbarians?

Are they so contrary, as to not realize that Radical Islam punishes every single social issue that American Liberals so “righteously” defend in this nation?

The maddening thing is that every time you challenge liberals on this fact, they try to equate radical Islam with American Christianity.

Then, these self-proclaimed “Biblical Pundits” attempt to tell you what the Bible says that you should do, as a Christian, misinterpreting scripture and drawing false equivalencies.

Frankly, the ignorance of these Pharisee-like Liberals blows my mind.

Richard D. Land, noted theologian, and Executive Editor of the Christian Post, authored the following op ed:

How do you balance Christian compassion for the very real suffering Syrian refugees with the God-ordained duty of the divinely ordained civil magistrate to protect the innocent and punish evil doers? (Romans 13: 1-7). 

Any decent person would want to help. Christians are mandated by their Savior to do something.

However, when it comes to welcoming Syrian refugees into the United States, it is also necessary to give attention to the obligations and responsibilities the government and citizenry have to demonstrate compassion for the innocent Americans who may be endangered by allowing possible terrorists into the U.S. disguised as refugees.

ISIS has acknowledged that they intend to do just that. And, having infiltrated into America, they will rapidly duplicate the dastardly deeds in our cities that they perpetrated in Paris.

We have an obligation, and a duty, to show compassion to every man, woman, and child in America by not putting them at needless risk or in harm’s way. Individual Christians may say that they are willing to take the risk to their personal safety in order to alleviate the suffering of these poor people. The problem is that you are not just putting your life at risk; you are putting your fellow Americans’ lives at risk without their consent.

The plight of the refugees is heartbreaking. However, so is the death of American children from terrorist attacks (remember the children killed and maimed in the Boston marathon bombing?).

Christians are certainly free, and may feel obligated, to disregard their own safety in order to minister to others in distress. However, they do not have the right to make the decision to endanger others without their permission.

An example that makes this point is the distinction I made several years ago in an article I was asked to write on whether Christians could practice agape love, i.e. the sacrificial, turn-the-other-cheek love that is a fruit of the Holy Spirit in redeemed people’s lives, in their business activities.

My conclusion was that they should if possible, but that they were more free morally and ethically to practice the heightened risks associated with agape love if it was their own business and the business and resources they were exposing to increased risk were their own and not their employer’s. They did not have the right to expose their employer’s business and resources to such increased risk without expressed permission to do so. Frankly, I think practicing an agape business ethic would be a great business model that would earn you great respect and repeat business. Nevertheless, you don’t have the right to make that decision while risking other people’s wellbeing rather than just your own without their expressed approval.

Fortunately, in the case of the Syrian refugees we don’t have to accept an “either/or” solution.

As a nation we can show compassion by providing the refugees a “safe zone” in their own homeland, guaranteed by American air and military power. We can also offer to reach into our national treasury, to help feed, clothe and house these unfortunate people in their safe zone, in refugee camps, or help relocate them in adjacent countries like Egypt and Turkey.

If someone feels led to show compassion more directly, they can make personal financial contributions and in other ways assist the refugees. They could work or volunteer for one of the private nonprofit organizations that provide humanitarian assistance. They could even volunteer to go overseas personally and minister directly to the refugees.

However, we cannot currently properly vet such people (according to the FBI director) to separate the good guys from the bad guys. It should also be remembered that at least a significant plurality of these refugees are young, unaccompanied men. In such a circumstance it would be criminally irresponsible for our federal government to ignore its duty to show compassion to its own citizens in order to extend the compassion of refugee status in the United States to the Syrian refugees.

It should be remembered that being “compassionate” includes being compassionate to all concerned, both those who are here in the U.S. as well as those who want to come. Being compassionate does not require, or even allow us, to voluntarily expose our neighbors’ jugular veins to those who would do them harm without our neighbors’ prior expressed permission.

Consequently, the Congress and the President must exercise their constitutional duty and suspend the resettlement of any Syrian refugees in the U.S. until they can be properly and safely vetted, which will probably require the prior defeat of ISIS.

I hang out…a lot…on Facebook Political Pages.

To expound on what I said earlier,

I am fascinated by the fact, that thanks to the use of supposedly Facebook-illegal “sockpuppets” or Phony Profiles, self proclaimed Internet “Pundits” and Tough Guys, living in their Mom’s Basement, can be whoever and whatever they want to be.

During the last several weeks, I have come across several Liberals and self-described “Independents” (i.e., Liberals too embarrassed to be identified as such or who think that they are fooling Conservatives by not identifying themselves as Liberals), who, having never had any use for the God of Abraham and his Holy Scripture before, are now “Christian Pundits”, who insist that all of us Christian Americans, who are opposed to bringing ISIS into our midst, as a “bunch of hypocrites”.

My father led me to Christ. He landed on Normandy Beach, on D-Day, as a Master Sergeant of an Army Engineering Unit. He was the finest man I have ever known.

God’s Holy Word tells us

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: – Ecclesiastes 3:1

Regarding the so-called Syrian “Refugees”, the overwhelming majority of which are military-looking ultra-fit men with cell phones,…

I am sick of how Liberals all the sudden have such an interest in the Bible and what Christ has to say in a feeble attempt at trying to use the faith of three quarters of Americans to prove their political point.

Hey Liberals, when you’re yanking a baby’s head out from their mothers womb with a pair of tongs, do you give a rat’s butt about the God of Abraham and the tenets of Christianity, then?

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. – Matthew 7:20

Until He Comes,


Our Anti-Christian, Anti-American, Bizarro World President

obamaegypt7613As I write this post, the Organizng for America,’s website, is being blown up by comments for Egyptian Citizens, protesting President Barack Hussein Obama’s support for the Islamic Terrorists, known as the Muslim Brotherhood.

I’m in solidarity with them.

If you have read any of my blogs at all, you know how I feel about the Manchurian President, Barack Hussein Obama. If I expressed my true feelings about the Communist Community Organizer living in OUR house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, my web host would probably ban me…and, I would lose my witness. (That’s a Southern Baptist thing. Y’all may not understand.)

Anyway, I can prove all three of the adjectives I have used in the title of this Blog to describe the loser in the White House.

Obama could not care less about Christians, Americans or otherwise. Remember a few years ago, when he said that America was no longer just a Christian nation? Or, before that, while out fund-raising in front of a bunch of private donors, he spoke about us average Americans “clinging to their guns and Bibles”? Obama publicly claims to be a Christian. However, in “Dreams of My Father”, ghost written by Bomber Bill Ayers, he states that he will “stand with the Muslims if the [political] winds blow in an ugly direction”.

Well…it has. And..he is.

As you know, if you’re not living under a rock, like those guys in the Geico Commercial, the Muslim Brotherhood is rioting over in Egypt over being thrown out of power by Moderate Muslims, who want their country to move forward, not backward. like the Islamic Theocracy of Iran. While these esteemed purveyors of the Religion of Peace have been having their hissy fit, they have decided to take it out on…you guessed it…Egyptian Christians.

30 churches have been damaged or destroyed, mostly due to being set on fire. Additionally, Christian schools, libraries, shops, cars and businesses have also been attacked by the supporters and members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Four Coptic Christians have been savagely murdered. The MB and their sycophants believe that Christians,who make up 10 per cent of the population, were partially responsible for Former President Morsi getting the heave-ho by the Egyptian Army, with the support of the Egyptian people. Threats and warnings have been written on the sides of churches, adding to the terror being perpetrated against them by the Islamists.

And, America’s Anti-Christian President has not said a mumbling word about it. In fact, it was his largess, using our tax dollars, that caused it.

On April 7, 2012, Andrew C. McCarty reported for National that

…the Obama administration quietly released $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the new Egyptian government, now dominated by a Brotherhood-led coalition in parliament — soon to be joined by an Ikhwan (i.e., Brotherhood) luminary as president.

…the Obama administration from its first days has embraced the Ikhwan — both the mothership, whose leaders were invited to attend Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo despite its then-status as a banned organization under Egyptian law, and the Brotherhood’s American satellites, which have been invited to advise administration policymakers despite their notorious record of championing violent jihadists and repressive sharia.

Obama has overlooked the MB’s intimate ties to Hamas, which self-identifies as the Ikhwan’s Palestinian branch and is formally designated a terrorist organization under American law. Administration officials have absurdly portrayed the Brothers as “secular” and “moderate,” although the organization, from its founding in the 1920s, has never retreated an inch from its professed mission to establish Islam’s global hegemony.

So, despite the wishes of Congress, our idiot president gave our tax dollars to the Godfather of Muslim Terrorist Organizations, whose membership wants to behead each and every one of us Americans, and Christians the world over.

And, then, in January of this year,Fox reported that

A source who works on the Naval Air Force Base in Dallas confirmed the departure of the state-of-the-art fighter planes to Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks are to be given to the Egyptian government before the end of the year under a foreign aid deal signed in 2010 with then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a longtime U.S. ally..

Critics, including several in Congress, say it doesn’t make sense to follow through with the package, given that new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, elected last summer, has given decidedly mixed signals about relations with the U.S. While he has toned down his rhetoric since his election, in 2010 – the same year the aid package was struck – Morsi attacked Obama for supporting Israel.

So, not only did Obama send money to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, he sent them overwhelmingly lethal weaponry, as well.

This is Smart Power? No, but it sure was against the best interests of our nation. It was an Anti-American action.

And, that’s where the Bizarro World part of the title comes in…

All average Americans, boys and girls, were brought up on Superman, whether through reading comic books, or watching television. As you know, Bizarro World is the home of “Bizarro”, a replica of Superman who does everything completely opposite of the way normal people do this. In fact, his entire world runs the same way

And, so it is with the Manchurian President. His words and actions, time and time again, are the exact opposite of what an American President would say or do.

On Thursday Morning, Obama made the following statement about the rioting by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian Government’s response to it.

Guess whose side our sitting American President took?

Let me begin by stepping back for a moment. The relationship between the United States and Egypt goes back decades. It’s rooted in our respect of Egypt as a nation, an ancient center of civilization, and a cornerstone for peace in the Middle East. It’s also rooted in our ties to the Egyptian people, forged through a longstanding partnership.

Just over two years ago, America was inspired by the Egyptian people’s desire for change as millions of Egyptians took to the streets to defend their dignity and demand a government that was responsive to their aspirations for political freedom and economic opportunity. And we said at the time that change would not come quickly or easily, but we did align ourselves with a set of principles: nonviolence, a respect for universal rights, and a process for political and economic reform. In doing so, we were guided by values but also by interests, because we believe nations are more stable and more successful when they’re guided by those principles as well.

And that’s why we’re so concerned by recent events. We appreciate the complexity of the situation. While Mohamed Morsi was elected President in a democratic election, his government was not inclusive and did not respect the views of all Egyptians. We know that many Egyptians, millions of Egyptians, perhaps even a majority of Egyptians were calling for a change in course. And while we do not believe that force is the way to resolve political differences, after the military’s intervention several weeks ago, there remained a chance for reconciliation and an opportunity to pursue a democratic path.

Instead, we’ve seen a more dangerous path taken through arbitrary arrests, a broad crackdown on Mr. Morsi’s associations and supporters, and now tragically the violence that’s taken the lives of hundreds of people and wounded thousands more.

The United States strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by Egypt’s interim government and security forces. We deplore violence against civilians. We support universal rights essential to human dignity, including the right to peaceful protest. We oppose the pursuit of martial law, which denies those rights to citizens under the principle that security trumps individual freedom, or that might makes right. And today the United States extends its condolences to the families of those who were killed and those who were wounded.

And given the depths of our partnership with Egypt, our national security interests in this pivotal part of the world and our belief that engagement can support a transition back to a democratically elected civilian government, we’ve sustained our commitment to Egypt and its people. But while we want to sustain our relationship with Egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back.

As a result, this morning we notified the Egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise which was scheduled for next month. Going forward I’ve asked my national security team to assess the implications of the actions taken by the interim government and further steps that we may take as necessary with respect to the U.S.-Egyptian relationship.

Let me say that the Egyptian people deserve better than what we’ve seen over the last several days. And to the Egyptian people, let me say the cycle of violence and escalation needs to stop. We call on the Egyptian authorities to respect the universal rights of the people. We call on those who are protesting to do so peacefully and condemn the attacks that we’ve seen by protesters, including on churches. We believe that the state of emergency should be lifted, that a process of national reconciliation should begin, that all parties need to have a voice in Egypt’s future, that the rights of women and religious minorities should be respected, and that commitments must be kept to pursue transparent reforms of the constitution and democratic elections of a parliament and a President.

To use an Internet Abbreviation…WTH?

Egyptians overthrew their burgeoning Radical Muslim Theocracy, in order to install a more Moderate, Democratic Pathway, in search of good, fair national government. What can’t Obama see this? Is he that stupid? Or, that devoted to “the Religion of Peace” that it has blinded him to reality? if so, Americans, we are totally scre…err…shafted. And, in the worst possible National Security Situation we could find ourselves in.

Evidently, Obama is either naive, or he’s in agreement with the stated mission of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Either choice means dangerous days ahead for our Constitutional Republic.

May the God of our Founding Fathers, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, protect and preserve us.

Until He Comes,
